The Jolly Sailors

Situated on the A149 coast road at Brancaster Staithe, The Jolly Sailors is a long-established North Norfolk pub, offering great food and ales at good value prices and super family friendly too.

The Jolly Sailors is housed in a white painted façade with blue door and windowsills that you can’t miss, the inside of The Jolly Sailors is rustic and warm, with plenty of wood and stone. It is also smart and cared-for, giving it an appealing vibe that elevates it to a higher-than-average-quality traditional eating pub.

The bar offers a wide selection of real ales and guest beers. Being the associated pub of the independent, family-owned Brancaster Brewery, The Jolly Sailors has many of this breweries’ ales on tap.

If ale isn’t your thing, there is a comprehensive wine list, with choices by the bottle & glass, the best selection of Rums on the coast, and there’s always a good cup of tea or coffee on the brew.

Outside is a large, leafy beer garden with a small adventure play area that would occupy even the most energetic child.

Food-wise, you’ll find tasty home-cooked pub food (including a plethora of local seafood), delights from ‘The Jolly Smokehouse’ and delicious stone baked pizza that you can eat in or takeaway. Perfect if you’re holidaying nearby. There’s a Kid’s Menu, a Daily Specials board and lighter options for lunch.

A sign outside reads “Children, muddy boots and dogs welcome” and this pretty much sums The Jolly Sailors up. Unpretentious and open to all, it has been providing warm hospitality to friends and strangers since the 18th Century. Still true to its traditional roots, it is also firmly 21st Century, focusing on good quality food, drink and service.
